Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Transport Quality Assurance (TQA)

TQA and PQA+ are certification programs that provide continuing education to pork producers.

TQA helps swine transporters, producers, and handlers understand how to handle, move and transport pigs and the potential impacts those actions have on pig well-being and pork quality.

U of M Extension, in conjunction with Minnesota Pork Board, holds three-hour, in-person training throughout the year. We also have added an online option.

Find out how to register to take the course online.

Check your certification status

To check your PQA and TQA status, call the Pork Checkoff Service Center at 1-800-456-7675.
